What is it about possessing things Why do we feel the need to own what we love, and why do we become jerks when we do We've all been there-- you want something, to possess it.

The little things she does with her hair, the way she wears her clothes or the way she chews her gum. Pretty soon what you like, what you changed, what you don't like, blends together like a watercolor in the rain.

What you keep by you, you may change and mend but words, once spoken, can never be recalled.

Earl of Roscommon

Whatever that God calls anyone to do, he equally equips him or her for it. Let's take prophet Jeremiah as a case study. He (Jeremiah) was destined to be a prophet even before he was formed or made in his mother's womb (Jeremiah 1 : 5). And that's why, when he complained that he was not outspoken or eloquent enough for his call and destiny. God neglected his complaints, because he already knew that he has wholly equiped him for the task in question. Now, that is to say, whatever you need to fulfill your God-given destiny is already deposited right inside you. So what else are you still waiting for? Anyway, what you've got to do is just to discover and fulfill your destiny by all means. And believe you me, the very moment your destiny is discovered and fulfilled. You will surely and eventually make a global impact and positive change in your lifetime or rather in the world just like prophet Jeremiah, biblical Joseph, king David, Zig Ziglar, Martin Luther King Jnr., Dr. Myles Munroe, Dr. Uma Ukpai, Chinua Achebe among others. Nevertheless, I so much believe in destiny. I don't know about you or rather what about you?

Emeasoba George

Emeasoba George

Whatever you have or know doesn't/can't/won't make a difference or an impact until you use it to change/touch someone else's life/other people's lives positively. Yes, you've got to change or touch someone else's life/other people's lives with whatever you have/know no matter how small it seems to you.

Emeasoba George

When a good change is flowing towards you, don’t stand like the river stones before it!

Mehmet Murat ildan

When a man you like switches from what he said a year ago, or 4 years ago, he is a broad-minded person who has courage enough to change his mind with changing conditions. When a man you don't like does it, he is a liar who has broken his promises.

Franklin P. Adams
